Public Computers

How to Login to a Library Computer 

In order to use public computers in any library, users need to log in with their Directory ID and password.

Your Directory ID is your UMD email address without "@umd.edu" and your password is the same one you use for logging into ELMS-Canvas.

Temporary guest accounts can be requested from service points at all accessible UMD library locations by showing a photo ID. In McKeldin for example, the Library Services Desk on the first floor or the TLC Tech Desk on the second floor.

Acceptable forms of ID include:

Driver's license, state-issued ID card, passport, military ID, school ID, or other institutional ID with photo and unique identifying number. 

All guest accounts allow users access for 7 consecutive days, at which point a new guest account will need to be created.

Note: guest accounts will not work on Mac workstations.

Software on Library Computers

The unified desktop allows users to access the Internet and Library pages, along with all software available through the Division of Information Technology, such as MATLAB, minitab, etc.
